In December, Sage released its New Sage 100 ERP for 2013. Right away the new features are evident in the ability to manage multi-company CRM and in processing orders in a more efficient manner utilizing quick entry screens. The power of Paperless Office is also now available on public mail servers such as Google mail, Yahoo, AT&T, and Hotmail with secure SMTP authentication.

While these changes in Sage’s newest ERP 100 installment are worth their weight in gold, there is no shortage of reasons to upgrade and we’ve compiled a few of them here, courtesy of Sage North America.

Top 10 Reasons To Upgrade From Sage 100 ERP 4.5 To Sage 100 ERP 2013

2.  Simplify the process of matching vendor invoices by using expanded Accounts Payable Invoice Number field.

3.  Experience increased flexibility of credit card processing through Sage Exchange including card-swipe capabilities, charges for repetitive invoices and Accounts Receivable invoices, and more.

Of particular to note to us here at DSD is the upgrade to Safe Sage CRM Customizations. To streamline your implementation of updates, enhancements in Sage CRM 7.1 include safeguards to preserve your customizations, so they do not have to be reapplied.
